Recap

Before getting carried away on the rest that is coming your way, don’t chuck your books away until you reopen again, instead, recap on all the academic work that you’ve been doing. This is also a great way to study and keep the mind active. It’s also time to get a jump start on planning next semester while you have time and there’s no time like the present!

Fix Up Your CV

There’s no better time to prepare yourself for the future, than getting advice or help and fixing up your CV – you never know when an opportunity may bring itself. So start drafting up that CV.

Visit Family

If you live far away from home, maybe you would want to consider visiting home and enjoying the benefits of being home – groceries, home cooked meals, satellite and spending quality time with the family. There’s also no better way than offloading to the people who care about you and they definitely won’t mislead you.

Have Fun

Do what makes you happy, find yourself. Exercise and stay healthy and combat the holiday bulge by keeping up with a regular exercise regimen. You’ll look – and, more importantly, feel – better. Remember to read too.

Look For A Part-Time Job

Might as well start looking into ways of making extra money that will give you a boost in varsity  without letting it disturb your studies of course. This can be anything from applying for internships within your field of study, volunteering or even waitressing just over the weekends.

Clean Up

Now is also the perfect time to get everything in order, starting with your room, laundry and everything else that you have been neglecting. Cleaning up your living space gives you inner peace and happiness.

Book Your Learners Licence

In this way, you don’t have to skip an important class waiting at the license department all day to get it done. It’s always good getting the procedures done and over with, remember the sooner you get it, the better. Who knows maybe, mom can surprise you with a ride.

Look For Bursaries

No matter how far we are in the year, it’s never too late to look for funding opportunities that may help ease the financial strain. Now is the time to keep an eye open for bursary opportunities.
